We looked up this place and had decided to go after trying some wares from the farmer's market (note: they do not bring any almond croissants to farmer's market). The best things: I always am looking for a bakery that will do napoleons (mille feuille) and they do! Their almond paste is delicious! The shop is lovely: with an Eiffel tower vent, high ceilings, and water with citrus wedges (deserves an extra point for that)!
The chocolate twist was good,but I taste cream cheese in it, as I do in the chocolate croissant. They are still good, but I am not used to tasting cream cheese in those baked goods. Their almond paste, as mentioned is very delicious. Interestingly, the almond croissant was cut. I also got a pumpkin-pear tart (OK, but will not be hankering after another) and a napoleon: very nice, flaky, though not crisp (could be because it was some hours between purchase and consumption) and the custard is delicious. They cover theirs with powdered sugar instead of the traditional glaze, which was OK, just not what I expected. I was not crazy about their bread, which is a shame! To be fair though I did not try their baguette, and that should be the measure of any establishment that has "boulange" in it.
The quality is good, but price is a little high (I am thinking ratio of price to size for the chocolate croissant). I would definitely go back though and sample other things, and I am very glad they are in the area. They also do not have a true decaf coffee: their decaf is a double espresso decaf (but if it is double, it is probably not as decaffinated as hoped).
